I am adding this dress from Baiastice to my folder of staple foods when it comes to classic dresses. I’ve worn it twice now and that’s a definite endorsement. It’s classic lines paired with casual comfort is perfect whether you’re feeling cocktail fancy or just comfy casual.
Today I’m somewhere in between. Continue reading
The newest release from DE Designs, Inga, sent me running to the store to grab it up (and a few other things). I love the styling of the loose wrap jacket over the tight, button down the side, leggings. They work perfectly with the slouch boots from Maitreya.

I was expecting various escorts, pimps and blingtards from SL holidays past to stop in and was ecstatic to find a new living room set from CHEEKY PEA at THE GARDEN which features a HIDEABED! Seriously – this comes in SO handy when your friends and relatives who still haven’t found mesh yet decide to spend the night! You just CLICK and it’s a bed. CLICK AGAIN and it’s a bed.
Makes a clean up a snap! Continue reading
I get scout reports.
One of the blessings of blogging is that people come to know my style and send me scout reports of finds that are “oh so Cajsa” and generally they are right. This time the report was spot on. In fact, why is this dress not named Cajsa?
The Twist Dress from Coquet can be purchased in black, cream or red versions. The white tube dress that lies under the black, cream or red wrap dress comes in a lovely broderie anglaise. You can purchase HUDS that allow you to tint the white portion. There are three sets of 3 or you can megabuck for all 9 options. Add that to the 3 wrap colors and you can see that this dress has a lot of possibilities – and every single one is lovely.
There are less than 12 hours left to explore, shop and spread joy to shoeless people around the world because Shoetopia closes at midnight. Remember, you are not only buying gorgeous shoes, but you are also helping raise money for Soles4Souls – an international effort to shod the shoeless. When you and I want a new pair of shoes, we want it for reasons of style, fashion or sport, but there are children who want shoes so they can go to school, so they can avoid hookworm parasites and deadly infections and injuries. Shoes for them are not a fashion statement, but a lifeline. So before time runs short, go to Shoetopia and shop, shop, shop.
Shoetopia will be ending this weekend. When I logged on earlier today it was easy to get in, so if you have been waiting for it to slow down, now is your chance. Certainly one of the can’t miss items at Shoetopia are these amazing shoes from League. I love the rich texture and the beautiful details that are the quintessential League elements. League designs with a verisimilitude I love -the shoes are not too glossy, the metal is not too shiny. There’s little wrinkles around the curves and t-strap that show they have been worn a few times. That buckle embellishment on the back is such a great addition. I love every single thing about these shoes.
So on Monday I did a set at The Velvet in celebration of the 50th Anniversary Doctor Who special. For fellow Whovians, it was a delight, full of the kind of wit, warmth and good fun we expect from the series – all with the fate of the world in balance. I thought I would share since there is a fair amount of SL – Whovian overlap.
Meanwhile, I am still madly in love with the apothecary cabinet from Schadenfreuda for November’s Collabor88. I may pose with it forever.
When I was a young lady I took a class for several months. It taught us how to BE young ladies, more to the point young women. One of the things we learned, was the ladylike way to stand, walk, and sit in a heeled shoe. We practiced in a heel of conservative style and elegance, and by the time we graduated, if you couldn’t walk in your heels when they were done I suspect you were cast into the realm of UNLADYLIKE THINGS.

I took a little nap today and the entire day disappeared in a puff of pillows and blankets and dreams. Not that I remember the dreams, but I assume they happened. I probably dreamt about shoes thanks to the cornucopia of shoes from Shoetopia which reminds be of the great song from Paolo Nutini, Matthew Benbrook and Jim Duguid:
Woke up cold one Tuesday
I’m looking tired and feeling quite sick
I felt like there was something missing
In my day to day life
So I quickly opened the wardrobe
Pulled out some jeans and a T-Shirt that seemed clean
Topped it off with a pair of old shoes
That were ripped around the seams
And I thought these shoes just don’t suit me
Hey, I put some new shoes on
And suddenly everything’s right
I said, hey, I put some new shoes on
And everybody’s smiling, it’s so inviting
Oh, short on money but long on time
Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine
And I’m running late and I don’t need an excuse
‘Cause I’m wearing my brand new shoes
Gidge loves to show off her house and I love her posts showing her pixel life. I thought I might give you just a little peek into my house, too. I just redecorated a bit with some of the new items from this month’s Collabor88, including a magnificent chest and mannequin from Apple Fall, that Eiffel Marquee from floorplan. that I am obsessed with and a new bed from Pilot.
I always forget why I don’t wear mesh eyelashes until I go to process pictures where I was wearing them. The demon eyes in my shadow amuse me, yet, it’s not EXACTLY what I was going for. I suppose it could be that I’m being shadowed by my demons. Let’s go with that. Continue reading
